Amazon could become the new home for just about anything Philip K. Dick.
The streaming service has just ordered a new anthology series from actor (and up-and-coming producer) Bryan Cranston and Outlander showrunner Ronald D. Moore, that will bring many of the late author’s short stories to life.
Dick’s works, of course, have been made into many television shows and movies over the years. Amazon, in fact, is the recipient of one of them – The Man in the High Castle, which was renewed for a third season earlier this year.
He’s also the author behind such box office hits as Blade Runner in 1982, Total Recall in 1990, Minority Report in 2002 (which was an unsuccessful Fox series in 2015), and A Scanner Darkly in 2006 that starred Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Robert Downey Jr.
This new collaboration is called Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, a title based on the name of Dick’s 1968 novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which became Blade Runner and serves as the basis for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049.
